I live in Jacksonville and think that this picture is awesome, but I am still hoping for the day that Amtrak's station moves back downtown.  The old Union Terminal building is not only historic but more easily accessible...

I always wondered why there are no sightseeing cars on the East Coast trains.  That would be nice, right?

@Amtrak I know that you can't say it, so I will.  Every Amtrak passenger should contact his/her elected officials about seeking more funding for passenger rail service.  Right now, our collective silence allows politicians to ignore the needs of train riders.  Not only should we contact Congress, we should contact our respective state legislatures and departments of transportation to lobby for more funding for passenger rail...

@CatalinaVDR Amen!  Amtrak is really pushing their sleeping cars on this blog.  Until I am adopted by the Trump family or until I win the Powerball jackpot, I will keep sleeping in my coach seat - LOL.

I agree that it is a lot more relaxing to have a glass (or two) of wine on the train and letting someone else do the driving...

@KristaKimba I am with you about the price of getting a sleeper room.  It would be cheaper to go through the hassle of flying than it would to get a sleeper room.  I don't mind sleeping in my coach seat or, as I did on a trip to California from Florida, snoozing in the observation car...

I have always been pleased by the dining car menu.  One day, I will have to splurge on a sleeper car when I take a long distance trip to enjoy some complimentary meals.

I have to get back on the Downeaster next time I go to Maine.  I love Concord Coach Lines, but missed taking the train from Boston to Maine this past July...

Amtrak deserves props for the outlets at their seats.  For the cost of a plane ticket, passengers should not have to worry about their cell phone losing its charge.  Amtrak FTW!

I don't mind sleeping in my seat as the sleeper car berths cost an arm and a leg.
